Merry Christmas From Theme Park Review!

Recommended Posts

First off, To everyone at TPR, wishing you, your families and everyone close a very Merry Christmas! Thanks for an awesome year!


So far it's been a great Christmas! We open our gifts on Christmas Eve before doing the church stuff. This is the first time that no one other than immediate family was over, making us just four for the first time ever. It was actually really nice! That changes this afternoon lol


A got a gift from the family of a Panasonic HDCTM 900K camcorder.....sweet! The porn will come out crystal clear I'm sure.


To add to the Apple stuff - got the software to re-wrap the 1080p content into something my iMac can edit.


I was a Windows guy who converted to Mac and became just a 'little' bit addicted -- organizing and editing content was just so much easier without all the troubleshooting and crashing. So, the family got me the big honkin' Steve Jobs bio hard cover edition. Because that's what Steve wanted. To have us not buying the iBooks edition....


Some clothings for work and life...no one needs to see everyone naked I say, without being pre-approved


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas everyone! This year we had to make multiple sacrifices due to an accident and my daughters epileptic issues. We did not do gifts this year due to budget requirements. We will have a great Christmas dinner. My 4 children have been troopers about this. I told them I would make up for this next Christmas (or sooner). I have really enjoyed reading the posts here and seeing such wonderful gifts. Just remember, it's not about the gifts, hold your family close. You don't need anything else.


Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season Greetings and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas!


Let's see if I remember everything I got.


From my Mom:

-2 movie scores (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 1 and X-Men: First Class)

-Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass (or the equivalent value toward a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass)

-Lord of the Rings PEZ Dispenser set

-Minor presents/Variety of Candy


From my Dad:

-2 Hot Chillys (thermal shirts for skiing)

-Plane tickets to Buffalo (for LeviaThon)

-Minor presents/Candy


From my Sister:

-Random book (can't remember the title, but I'll probably never read it)



From my Brother:

-Pokemon: Black for Nintendo DS


From my maternal grandparents:

-Mini Texas Hold'Em set

-Roller Coasters in the RAW 6

-See's Candy

-Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7


-Minor presents


From my paternal grandparents:

-Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows score



Despite intending for this to be a "light" year in terms of spending, I ended up getting quite a bit. Maybe my grandparents didn't get the memo.

A few of my favorite things:


-Ceramic hand crank coffee grinder


So I can be a coffee snob with my Kona/Costa Rica beans and stovetop espresso pot.


-Chinese 24/7


Mandarin book for beginners, to help me out in my study of foreign languages, and maybe know a little something for that TPR China trip!


Those are pretty much the two things I'll be playing around with the most. I also "got" a family trip to Maine this summer, a little Chinese travel guide, and my mom apparently had to get me a k'nex coaster set (another, as they used to be my obsession), in efforts to just have my play with roller coasters at home instead of traveling everywhere.
